the concept
The Concept
  • Disaster Resilience and Response Hub - a centralized and protected location for the staging, logistics, management and coordination of resources in the event of a catastrophic event in the Bay Area;
  • Applied Research and Technology Laboratory - a virtual lab to develop, deploy, test and validate the tools and systems focused on regional capability that Incident Commanders, EOC directors, and first responders need to more effectively undertake disaster response and recovery operations; and
  • Advanced Emergency Response Training Center – developing and diffusing advanced training programs supporting national efforts for emergency and medical personnel in advance of their need.

Disaster Resilience & Response Hub
  • The use of Moffett Field as the ideal location grew out of lessons learned from Hurricane Katrina, when NASA’s Stennis Space Center became the prime Logistics Staging Area and Operational Staging Area for the region.
  • NASA Ames Research Center’s active airfield, and access to freeways, railways and the waterways of San Francisco Bay, make it an ideally situated transportation center and distribution point for disaster response. Data and voice communications, including a robust emergency communications capability, also are available, as are emergency power, fuel storage and water storage.

Professional emergency responders are the “go to” folks for responding to catastrophic disasters. Yet while there is no doubt that advanced systems and state of the art technologies can enhance responder’s capabilities and increase their safety, several disconnects impede progress:

  • Private technology developers have limited insight into what responders really need or how to make the technology useful in the responder’s working environment.
  • Frequently responders are not aware of new developments in technology. Even if they become aware of them, there are limited integrated training programs that specialize in the hands on training on advance tools and techniques.

  • Emergency response organizations at the local level seldom have sufficient funding to provide financial support for technology development.
  • Private industries, companies, and laboratories that develop new technologies are responding to markets that will result in a significant return on their investments. This means that some specialized technologies for emergency response aren’t developed because of a perceived lack of profit.
  • Co-locating researchers and developers with stakeholders from the disaster response, training and preparedness communities – both virtually and physically -- can help overcome these obstacles.
